Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Visiting Postojna Cave and Škocjan Caves will get you outdoors. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Ljubljana Old Town and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Piran (Mediadom Pyrhani, Magical World of Shells Museum, &more), Da Ponte Fountain (in Koper) and Strunjan Nature Reserve (in Strunjan). There's much more to do: snap pictures at Triple Bridge, get curious at House of Experiments - Hisa eksperimentov, explore the activities along Ljubljanica River, and get a sense of history and politics at Town Hall.
